The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. -Saint Augustine
I missed you guys!
In case you were wondering where I'd gotten to, I just got back from a two-week family road trip. My husband works super hard so I can write and take care of our son, and I haven't had a sabbatical since I started work on All That Glitters. Almost two years ago.
Needless to say, it was high time we all took a break.
We drove from our home in the San Francisco Bay Area up to Seattle, Washington. Stayed a week, visiting friends. Drove back down to visit a friend in Eureka, California, then continued on down to San Diego. We puttered around there for a week and reconnected with some more old friends.
In case you couldn't guess, we have friends pretty much everywhere.
In honor of our safe return, I thought I'd share some photos I took during our travels. We had a grand time, and I even got some research in for future books. Enjoy the photologue!
(above) View of the streets of Seattle from underground. We took the official tour. So cool! The "skylights" are laid into the sidewalks. I have visions of setting a future novel here.

(above) Catching a late-night blues show in Eureka, California. The harp player is a friend of ours. I used to go to blues jams every week back when I lived in Redding; it felt good to reconnect with the scene!
(above) The Pacific Beach Pier, San Diego, California. My husband and I used to walk here back when we were still dating. It was fun reenacting that- even toting along a tired toddler who wouldn't stop screaming...
